Mari-Mari is a Shell - a Creation created by Laeh - but unlike she was supposed to, she is not empty.

- Modifications artist(s):
- me (eye mod)
- Date of acquisition:
- Body: somewhere 2015 / Head: 10.20.2016?
- Body from Doa / Head from a friend
- Reason for choice:
- I have been searching new suitable sculpt for Mari-Mari for a long time and my friend suggested this head. I had to modify her eyes a bit but she ended up being pretty perfect for the part - Body is my grail body and it is everything I love about dolls
- Best Points:
- Body, lips
- Worst Points:
- pointy ears, I'm not really fan of those
She has Seed of Self inside of her. She is not exactly like other Living beings, but she is not like other Creations either.
Laeh did not create Mari-Mari on purpose - She was discarded and laid for weeks forgotten on top of a pile of discarded doll parts. Laeh only noticed that this specific Shell was somehow special after Mari-Mari started reacting with the Seed of Self as it started to sprout inside of her and after one exceptionally bad nightmare Laeh notices strange presence from one of the dolls, picks it up and stares it in the eyes.
Without thinking, she continues on where she was left with this doll and finishes her, gently adding each detail that the doll started to resemble her beloved one. Maybe this was the suitable vessel to hold the soul of her beloved one?
The doll comes out amazing. She is everything and more than Leia ever dreamed to look like and Laeh gets distracted just enough that she makes the mistake of picturing her and Leia's wedding - and Leia's wedding dress replicates on top of the doll and just for a moment, the doll looks just like her wife and it's more than Laeh can take in. And she goes berserk, yelling the doll that she is not -her-.
After Laeh calms down, she modifies doll's appearance in to more darker colors and adjusts her facial features - to make sure for herself that the doll is -not- Leia. Not yet. Laeh gives the doll name Mari-Mari and makes it clear to the doll that while she clearly has some sort of spirit or sense of self, her body will eventually be given to Leia.
Mari-Mari hears and sees beautiful White Spirit in her mind. She is kind and warm and always ready to guide Mari-Mari and take her doubts and sadness in her. Little does Mari-Mari know, that the White Spirit she sees, is the same soul that she is supposed to hand her body over to.
It has come to the attention of forum staff that Dollshe Craft has ceased communications with dealers and customers, has failed to provide promised refunds for the excessive waits, and now has wait times surpassing 5 years in some cases. Forum staff are also concerned as there are claims being put forth that Dollshe plans to close down their doll making company. Due to the instability of the company, the lack of communication, the lack of promised refunds, and the wait times now surpassing 5 years, we strongly urge members to research the current state of this company very carefully and thoroughly before deciding to place an order. For more information please see the Dollshe waiting room. Do not assume this cannot happen to you or that your order will be different.Dismiss Notice
